The program is specifically for those who need food assistance, but the bank is hoping to help beyond that by lifting their spirits. Executive Director Mary Blair says services like this are so important to low income families in the Tri-State.
"They thank us," said Blair. "Want to give us hugs, which is just really nice. And there's so many of them. You can just tell just the look on their face they're happy they've been able to get this food."
Each family was given two weeks worth of groceries along with gifts for their kids.
